How low did Adidas sink with profiting off Kevin Ware’s injury?

Before I rant a little, read the above article first. It has come to my attention that Adidas made the shirt and apparently Louisville approved for it to be sold. Because of that, we have this very strange situation. Adidas is using the injury that Kevin Ware suffered so they can make an extra buck with merchandise sales. Not a single penny made will go to Ware.

Look at the jersey they used for O’Neal. The name and number are placed in front of the jersey? And look at the other retired numbers. All the fonts are wrong. For such a historical franchise, they really have no one to point out the inaccuracies of these jerseys? Terrible.

But the ceremony was very nice.
